Studio open during Burkittsville Home & Garden Tour

In 1995, I completed a Native American Vision Quest ceremony. While "crying in the darkness" for a vision, I was called to a life of shamanism and art making. Seven years later, I left behind a 20+ year career in Information Systems Management and Engineering  to pursue my vision full time.

THE TRAVELER'S WINDOW


I engage with the land's energy. It's narratives excite my senses. With mind, spirit, body & camera ready, I enjoin conversation. Here are postcards from along the way.

THE NEW SEMINARY


My studio is a 19th century chapel in a historic farm village nestled along wooded mountains. Spirit & Nature infuse my art. I seek to activate art to develop community.

WOVEN WATERS


During BP's 2010 Gulf Oil Spill,, feeling helpless, I doodled oil and water, seeds of ideas for a company, folios of fabric swatches, now a textile gallery, Immaterial.

SHAMAN'S JOURNEY


I practice shamanism. Art, ritual, trance, and journey are my principal tools. I use "hand made" & digital tech, old & new media to abstractly express my visions.
